The Truth About Kourtney Kardashian And Travis Barker

Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker have reignited dating rumors after spending a Saturday together poolside in Palm Springs. The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star and Blink-182 drummer shared snapshots to their respective Instagram Stories of a large infinity pool overlooking the Los Angeles mountains on Jan. 23, 2021. The sprawling Palm Springs property is believed to be Kris Jenner's, as per People.

While Kardashian and Barker are yet to publicly confirm their relationship  status— aside from subtle social media postings and comments — an insider told E! News that the two have been casually dating since December 2020. "It's been very low-key. They are a really good match, and Kourtney's entire family already loves Travis. They have been neighbors and great friends for years, and it just recently turned romantic."

The source explained to E! News that, "Travis has always had an eye for Kourtney," and equally the reality star has always been attracted to his parenting style. The insider claimed, "The chemistry and flirtation has always been there. They have a lot in common." Previously, the longtime friends were quick to dispel romance rumors — but now as the two remain tight-lipped, let's take a look back at their shared history.

Travis Barker previously claimed he and Kourtney Kardashian were 'just friends'

Aside from being friends, Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker are neighbors in their Calabasas community, according to People. Barker has made a couple of cameos on Keeping Up with the Kardashians and their kids have even mingled. Barker's teenage daughter Alabama has been to the Jenners for dinner and Barker told ET in 2017 (via Yahoo! Movies) that his son Landon is close with Kourtney's kids, Mason and Penelope Disick.

Previously, Barker dismissed any romantic claims during an interview at the 2019 iHeartRadio Music Awards. "Kourtney's like a dear friend. That's it... I mean, I love her to death. I love her family to death. But yeah just friends," he told People. However, fans noticed the pair sliding into each other's social media in the new year. In January 2021, Barker commented a red rose emoji on a sultry Instagram photo of the 41-year-old wearing a black bra and spandex shorts. He also called her "so cool" after she posted about his favorite film True Romance on Instagram. On top of this, a source told The Sun that Kardashian even bought his daughter Alabama a rare $795 Prada bag. "It was a very interesting gift for Travis' 15-year-old daughter," the insider said.

The two have kept their love lives fairly quiet over the past few years with Barker's most recent public relationship being with singer Rita Ora in 2015, per Daily Mail, and the mother-of-four's with model Younes Bendjima in 2018, per Grazia.
